Here is what I am considering: Uber from BUF to Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls for approximately $40USD. 

Then, Uber from the Rainbow Bridge to Enterprise car rental in Niagara Falls, ON is no more than $10CAD.  A one day one way rental to Toronto is $95CAD all in.

Is there anything wrong with my plan?

Not cheaper to just rent a one way from BUF to Toronto?

Not available these days as there's only demand in one direction.

I wish there was even if it was slightly more expensive.  The only one way rental from BUF to Toronto that I can find is with Alamo and it requires a minimum 3 day rental for $785USD all in.  If anyone knows of anything better, please let me know. Thanks.

What if you were to rent a car in Buffalo (with a scheduled return in Buffalo) and attempt to drop it off in Toronto?

I found this on the Hertz web site:

"A Return Change Fee of $12.99 will be applied if you return the vehicle to a different location from that which was scheduled, or if you return more than 12 hours after the date and time previously scheduled, and you failed to notify Hertz of such a change more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled return time by calling Hertz at 1-800-654-4174."

This fee will be applied in addition to any change in rental rate that occurs as a result of extending your rental."

When National and Enterprise had the three day minimum rentals available for about the same price, both confirmed in writing to me that you can return  2 days early and only pay for one day. Still expensive, but closer to $200 all in. Not sure if that's the same for Alamo.

Proof is proof. It shouldn't matter, but there's no telling when it comes to entering Canada.

I plan to go for a test on Monday.  I looked up my results from a test done in November before it was necessary to cross the border:

Specimen:
Requisition:
Lab Reference ID:
Report Status: FINAL
Collected: 11/19/2020 00:00
Received: 11/20/2020 08:07
Reported: 11/21/2020 16:59

Methodology:  Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)
includes RT-PCR or TMA

Will this be sufficient for crossing the land border?

Rules are here:
Quote
Providing proof of your result
You must present an accepted test result (paper or electronic proof) which must include:

Traveller name and date of birth
Name and civic address of the laboratory/clinic/facility that administered the test
The date on which the test was conducted
The type of test conducted
The test result

At this time, we encourage travellers to make best efforts to have their test performed at a reputable laboratory or testing facility (i.e., one recognized by the local government or accredited by a third party, such as a professional organization or international standards organization).

Funny to see all direct flights Sold out to BUF from NYC.
 Here's one example before pesach.



Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Rules are here:

The rules state the test result must include "The date on which the test was conducted", but it does not require the time the test was taken and my last test result doesn't show an actual time.  So how do they establish 72 hours instead of just 3 days?
